Chesapeake Light Craft Demo 
- August 30, 2015 - 10 am - 4 pm

Come on over and try out a CLC boat, or bring your own CLC boat for show-and-tell. We love to see them. CLC will bring a wide range of kayaks including the stitch-and-glue variety and cedar-strippers. Also, try out the Kaholo Stand-up Paddleboards and their most popular small rowing craft at the demo. RSVP to Chesapeake Light Craft if you are interested in demoing a specific craft.
